Comment on NT should become the Switzerland of the Southern Hemisphere by Phil Walcott.

I can relate to your frustrations, Kelvin. Thanks for your insights and perceptions. From a personal position, I concur with your views regarding Delia Lawrie.
YES … unfortunately the lacklustre leadership from a number of the parliamentary and bureaucratic circles fail to project any long-term vision beyond election cycles into our Territory’s future. Devising plans isn’t enough. We need visions to underpin them. Singapore and China had visions … and look where they are now. They made “boundless possible” a reality rather than simply a mantra.
We can only hope that there are enough people within those ranks, and those from the commercial and industrial sectors, who are prepared to look at ways that we can collectively enhance the Northern Territory’s present and future.
We have the people, we have the capacity. Now all we need is the will to realise some remarkable opportunities.

Jacinta Price: 4 year commitment lasted 18 months
Prediction: If Jacinta is not successful in winning Lingiari in four weeks and Josh Burgoyne doesn’t win the second Senate seat (which won’t happen because the Senate roles are ‘fixed’ at one CLP: one NTALP), they’ll both contest the August 2020 NT Legislative Assembly in Braitling (Jacinta) and Araluen (Josh).

First Aboriginal doctor: Gordon Briscoe AO, BA (Hist), MA, PhD
A terrific read … great acknowledgement of a man who looks like having significantly contributed to many generations of Aboriginal people, both locally and around the country.
Always good to learn of such accomplishments from those of us who had a difficult beginning.
Happily shared on some social media. Thanks for being, Gordon.


Gallery: The Gunner spin goes on
Pretty obvious this is a blatant political move by the Feds. They back their own team in SA to the detriment of the opposition team in the NT.


Senator Scullion will not contest Federal election
Just throwing a conversation starter into the mix, Sharpie.
